There are plenty of available parking spaces on campus due to CBC employees and students parking off-campus to make room for our guests. Please be aware of designated “fire lanes” with red curbs, and the City of Conway has issued that no vehicles park on the adjacent streets, since these are marked with “no parking” signs. All parking spaces on the south and west sides of the Cooper Complex will be designated “handicapped parking” for the duration of the meeting. Please follow the “Overflow Parking” signage for additional parking options close to campus. Golf cart shuttles will also frequently run during the duration of the meeting.
We hope you will be our guest at the Appreciation Breakfast on Friday, Nov. 3 at 7:30 a.m. located in the Community Room in the Mabee Student Services Complex. Please RSVP by contacting Director of Church Relations Duffy Guyton at (501) 269-6784 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
